Mominette by Katarina Hybenova

France’s Bastille Day is taking place again this 14th of July. If you can’t hop on a plane and make it to Toulouse or Paris, or even if you don’t have the time/money to hop a train to Quebec for a few days, you can stay in the neighborhood and celebrate it locally. Bushwick’s got you covered! Our international enclave has plenty of French culture, right outside your front door. Here are some ways to celebrate.

#1 Get a Bottle of Rosé from Henry’s

69 Central Ave, Bushwick

For less than $15 you can have a high-class experience on your roof. Invite some friends and loved ones and share the bubbly.
